[A47J] KITCHEN EQUIPMENT; COFFEE MILLS; SPICE MILLS; APPARATUS FOR MAKING BEVERAGES [6] High-efficiency heating apparatus Assignee(s): Hyper Fryer, LLC (North Richland Hills, TX) Law Firm: No Counsel Application No., Date, Speed: 17222302 on 04/05/2021 (463 days app to issue) Abstract: A high efficiency heating apparatus for heating fluids and cooking mediums, such as oil or shortening within a fryer, includes a natural draft (non powered) combustion chamber with internal baffles that is affixed to an exterior surface of a fry tank. [A47J] KITCHEN EQUIPMENT; COFFEE MILLS; SPICE MILLS; APPARATUS FOR MAKING BEVERAGES [6] Intra-oral scanning device with integrated optical coherence tomography (OCT) Inventor(s): Glen Freeman (Plano, TX), Grant E. Kenworthy (Allen, TX), Greg R. Basile (Dallas, TX), Henley S. Quadling (Dallas, TX), Justin G. Graham (Wylie, TX), Mark S. Quadling (Plano, TX), Rod A. Duncan (Lucas, TX), Ye Li (Pla Assignee(s): D4D Technologies, LLC (Richardson, TX) Law Firm: Scheef Stone, LLP (Local) Application No., Date, Speed: 16298613 on 03/11/2019 (1219 days app to issue) Abstract: An intra-oral scanning device includes a light source and an optical system, and communicates with a display system. The device provides for more efficient transmission and capture of images. It integrates OCT scanning with RGB-based scanning. In operation, the device is used for recording topological characteristics of teeth, dental impressions, or stone models by digital methods and for use in CAD/CAM of dental restorative prosthetic devices. To that end, the RGB-based scan obtains surface data (e.g., a margin), while the OCT scan penetrates the surface. The two scanners operate from within the same physical housing and preferably at the same time such that only one scanning pass (to obtain all necessary data) is required. The 3D data obtained from the OCT scan is registered with the 3D data obtained from the RGB-based scan by virtue of being captured using a common return path. Preferably, the 3D surface data is used to align the volume data, such that the OCT scan operates over a much sparser scanning volume than would otherwise be required if the OCT scan were carried out separately. In this manner, there is less stitching of data required to build the output images, thereby enabling a ”one-pass” operation. [A61B] DIAGNOSIS; SURGERY; IDENTIFICATION (analysing biological material G01N, e.g. G01N 33/48) Knotless micro-suture anchors and anchor arrays for anatomical attachment of soft tissue to bone Assignee(s): Integrity Orthopaedics, Inc.

The anchor can include an elongate body with side surfaces defining a maximum diameter of the body. The body can also include proximal, middle and distal bores extending from the top surface to the bottom surface, each bore located at spaced intervals along the elongate body with a single suture passing into the proximal bore top surface and out the bottom surface, then back up through the distal bore bottom surface out the top surface leaving a length of suture extending past the middle bore bottom surface. To assure toggling in transtendinous delivery into bone, the elongate body can include a pair of fins extending both proximally and radially outward from the elongate body to prevent back out once placed in a bone hole. [A61B] DIAGNOSIS; SURGERY; IDENTIFICATION (analysing biological material G01N, e.g. G01N 33/48) Method for creating a tensionable and lockable suture anchor array for anatomical attachment of tissue to bone Assignee(s): Integrity Orthopaedics, Inc. (Orono, MN) Law Firm: Seager, Tufte Wickhem, LLP (3 non-local offices) Application No., Date, Speed: 17551779 on 12/15/2021 (209 days app to issue) Abstract: Methods for creating high-density arrays of suture stiches through a tendon into bone for reattachment of a torn tendon, particularly a rotator cuff tendon. The method includes providing a pre-strung plurality of anchors, each anchor having at least one passage therethrough with a continuous length of suture slidably and serially threaded through the at least one passage of each anchor. Each of the anchors further includes a locking assembly for locking the suture within the individual anchor. A first anchor is implanted through the tendon and the suture is locked. A second anchor is implanted a selected close distance from the first anchor, then applying tension to the suture extending from the first anchor and passing through the second anchor the second anchor is locked to create a single suture tensioned and locked stitch between the first and second anchor. This process is repeated for each anchor in the array. [A61B] DIAGNOSIS; SURGERY; IDENTIFICATION (analysing biological material G01N, e.g. G01N 33/48) Methods for transtendinous implantation of knotless micro suture anchors and anchor arrays Assignee(s): Integrity Orthopaedics, Inc. (Orono, MN) Law Firm: Seager, Tufte Wickhem, LLP (3 non-local offices) Application No., Date, Speed: 17551885 on 12/15/2021 (209 days app to issue) Abstract: A method and apparatus are provided for transtendinous implantation of a toggle-type bone anchor. Measured from the top surface of the tendon, the entire bone anchor is inserted to a depth of greater than or equal to 20 mm. during a rotator cuff repair on the humeral head. The anchor is pushed by the same bone punch that formed the initial hole to assure proper depth of placement. Further, the apparatus includes a nub portion that, in use, protrudes into the bone hole formed by the bone punch and maintains registration with the bone hole when the bone punch is retracted. An angled distal end on the anchor initiates toggling during insertion into the bone and at least one proximal projecting fin prevents the anchor from backing out of the bone hole while facilitating further rotation of the anchor when a suture is pulled to complete toggling. [A61B] DIAGNOSIS; SURGERY; IDENTIFICATION (analysing biological material G01N, e.g. G01N 33/48) Hand sanitizing aqueous ozone spray chamber Assignee(s): UNASSIGNED Application No., Date, Speed: 17384621 on 07/23/2021 (354 days app to issue) Abstract: An illustrative aqueous ozone sanitizing system for body part, tissue, and instrument sanitizing, including hand rinsing and sanitizing includes a sanitizing chamber, spray devices configured to simultaneously irrigate the entire left and right hand of a user, at least two aqueous ozone generators each fluidly coupled to a subset of the spray devices, and a housing for the sanitizing chamber having an opening for guiding the user”s hand orientation and position into the sanitizing chamber.
